I've been in a goldfish store that imported fancy fish from Japan. The fish arrived by air, in large plastic bags, sealed with tight rubber bands. Air was left at the top of the bag. Bags were inside a Styrofoam ice chest type of container.

The issue is oxygen in the water, so transportation has to be swift and there has to be air included inside the bag as well as plenty of water for the fish.

If the airline will allow you to bring the fish in the cabin as a carry-on pet, that might be the best, but you would have to check with TSA about regulations. I flew last year with a puppy and had to pay $160 for each leg of the trip in order to have the puppy in cabin. So you also need to ask about the charge to bring the fish inside the cabin with you,

Thanks for the reply.

I do believe everything you say here.
It's like I almost need the petco people to do this for me as they have the bag and are able to fill it up with a significant amount of air.
I hope I don't have to pay $160 for each fish! LOL
That would be a big no no on my part.

I guess I should just straight get in touch with the TSA and get a real solid facts from them.

Thank you.

Shipping fish is somewhat easy. They have brreathable bags and you can put a chemical in there that kind of sedates them. You dont feed the for a couple of days first to keep ammonia down. Youd have to overnight pet ship them though,.

I personally wouldnt do it, id try rehome them. While I have an attachment to my fish, they have none to us.

Plant Industry Division | Plant Quarantine – Application for Permits

Looks like at least a $20 'import' fee to bring them into the state. Not sure if you need to have filled out paperwork to go along with them or not, I didn't look very long.

Usually fish are shipped in plastic bags tied shut with rubber bands. I believe they are usually given a shot of oxygen before sealing the bag to get higher oxygen levels in the bag. Fish shops have some sort of air in a tank that is put in the bags before they're sealed. Probably be best to contact folks who ship fish and ask them for details.

There are a lot of koi in Hawaii as well as comets and black moors so should you be unable to bring those specific fish, you could get some of their matching cousins pretty easily. Koi live a long time, get really big and come to know their people, so once you get your tank set up in Hawaii perhaps you could several and have a pet that would last a lifetime perhaps.

Personally I would give common fish, the tank, filter etc etc to someone and start anew when I move. That is what I did.

Nice to upgrade my tank size, tank stand, move from Fuval Fx4 to Fx6, change to different substrate and decor etc.

If you do fly with the ones you have I know . Maybe SureLife Bait Buddies Tablet will work on the flight.

Or one of those battery operated Marine Metal Bubble Box from Amazon will work if allowed by the airline

Default Whatever happened?

I’m attempting a move to Hawaii. When COVID happened, I took my job’s pet betta home. He’s living a luxurious 10 gallon life now and I consider myself an expert level betta caregiver. So, when my niece abandoned her betta, I adopted him too. Now I have two pet betta that I need to keep separated. I never even wanted fish but now they’re family. I’m wondering how your flight went. Did TSA or the airlines give you a hard time? What did you use to transport? I was thinking plastic water bottle but I’m not sure they’ll go through that little opening willingly. Also, I’d need separate containers bc betta are fighters. Did you have more than one container? How much tank water did you have in there? My fear is that I’ll have shipped all of my stuff including tanks and will show up to the airport only to be told they can’t come. I don’t know what I would do. Please tell me what happened. Aloha
